Fifteen years ago on a quiet January morning, I started this blog. During those fifteen years, I’ve made many wonderful reading friends. I’ve been inspired by all of you, dear friends, as I’ve shared with you my own love of reading. The book blogging community is warm and supportive, and my life is greatly enriched by my interactions with all of you. So today I celebrate fifteen years full of great reading and great friends. Cheers!
Even though I read a lot more on my Kindle these days, this is still so true for me! For you, too?
On March 7, 2017, I joined The Classics Club and made a commitment to read 50 books in 5 years. I just posted my 50th review and completed this challenge!
I loved the reading I did for this challenge, and because I enjoyed it so much, and because there are endless classics to read, I’ll be signing up in the next few days for another 50 books in 5 years! Watch for my post: Classics Club-Round 2!

Woohoo!! And now… back to my reading!
An enjoyable and successful morning of reading for Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon! Taking a break now for lunch and a couple of errands, and then back to my reading of books with GARDEN AT THE HEART!
It’s been an awfully busy week…so this afternoon is just for reading! No appointments, meetings, or interruptions. Just reading…
I’m posting this detail from a painting by John William Waterhouse just because I found it so beautiful.
I have sometimes dreamt that when the Day of Judgment dawns and the great conquerors and lawyers and statesmen come to receive their rewards — their crowns, their laurels, their names carved indelibly upon imperishable marble — the Almighty will turn to Peter and will say, not without a certain envy when He sees us coming with our books under our arms, “Look, these need no reward. We have nothing to give them here. They have loved reading.”
Today we celebrate Virginia Woolf who was born on this day in 1882.
